A mystic queen of great power and beauty accepts no criticism, especially from a lowly wandering samurai. Can Jack find another one of the Threads of Time before he's imprisoned for royal heresy?

    So there we have it. Another stellar issue from Jim, Andy, Josh and Shawn. I really hope that these guys all stick together on this series for a good long while. Read Full Review

    Andy Suriano does a great job of capturing the look and feel of Samurai Jack. His storytelling is silky smooth, giving a nice sense of movement and action. The fight scenes are the highlight, as Jack slices several robots to pieces with fluid grace. The backgrounds drop out a little too often, but that also fits in with the Samurai Jack cartoon, which often used solid, sparse backgrounds to contrast the characters. All in all, Samurai Jack is a fun, great looking comic book that is worth your hard-earned bucks. Read Full Review

    SAMURAI JACK #4 is basically more of the same. If you've been enjoying the book, there's pretty much no reason why you won't enjoy this one as well. The premise isn't as inspired as the last issue and the action isn't as good as the debut issue, but it's still a very nice dose of fun and a satisfying adventure. Read Full Review

    “Samurai Jack” is such a specific type of property that it might easily go unnoticed by comic book readers who weren't already fans of it. I'd urge anyone who didn't watch the cartoon to check it out if they're at all interested in all ages action-centric tales with a willingness to be goofy sometimes. Those of you that are or were fans of the character – this should be on your pull list already. Rectify that, if it's not. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Jan 22, 2014

    Samurai Jack is a thoroughly enjoyable series that pays a lot of respect to everything that came before it. The Threads of Time is an interesting story that puts Jack in new and dangerous situations. You can see a pattern emerge with Jack's journey, but you keep reading to see how he reaches his destination. Read Full Review

    Capturing the strand which has kept the Queen young and powerful for generations, Samurai Jack moves one step closer to his task (which is now being aided actively by the strands themselves who are growing more powerful as Jack collects more of them). For fans. Read Full Review
